Very interesting point from the article.
Also- the article stated that seafood that people consume contains much smaller traces of phosphates. This backs up me making my own food from fresh seafood from the grocery store, cyclopeeze, and a mixer (thanks Doug for the tip).
Further interesting to note is that the author says that rinsing the frozen food really only removes about 1% of the phosphate from that frozen cube.
